Both practices while very much dissimilar are similar in the sense that the main objective is to obtain oneness with the universe and/or oneself; in Hinduism it is referred to as Moksha and in Buddhism it known as Nirvana. The Upanishads consist of many teachings, written from the point of view
?a sutta implies that there are no pluralistic features between Buddhism and Brahmanism. Moreover, the Ca?k? sutta of the Majjhima-nik?ya contains the facts that the Buddha rejected the truth and theory of knowledge that Brahmanism had introduced.? Especially, the divine revelation that was the ultimate teaching in Brahmanism was rejected by the Buddha in the discussion with Br?hma?a Tevijja.? In this respect, it is clear that though Buddhism practiced tolerance towards Brahmanism, it did not hold even a nominal point regarding
Not all cultures believe in a universal truth, Buddhism actually identifies that it does not have the universal truth. In Buddhism you cannot practice mindfulness and compassion and believe to have the universal truth, this is what creates the intolerance and fanaticism within the other cultures and religions
Another difference lies in the fact that Hinduism is an ethnic religion (a similarity between Hinduism and Judaism) while Buddhism is considered a universalizing religion (a similarity between Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam). Another primary difference between the two religions is that Hinduism followed a caste system in which people were born into particular castes. On the other hand, Buddhism did away with this caste system such that different subgroups were not distinguished from one another. Furthermore, Buddhism emphasizes the teachings of Buddha, who might also be referred to as the “Enlightened One.” Following from this, Buddhism emphasized the path to enlightenment through understanding of what are called the “four noble truths.” In my reading of the chapter, I did not find evidence of these truths being part of Hinduism. In addition, Hinduism seems to place a greater emphasis on things like ceremonies, rites, and pilgrimages, while Buddhism doesn’t seem to place as much emphasis on such rituals.
The Four Noble Truths and the Eight Fold Path have been a major part in Buddhism for years, and still is a huge part in Buddhism today. It makes up the core of Buddhists teachings. All of these have been believed to come from Buddha. Even though The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path came centuries ago from Buddha and was used as a way to end suffering, it has become commonly used and a big part in todays world to help the Buddhists way of life. It is believed that the origin of the Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path came from Buddha himself.
Of the Buddhist religions, there are groups in which are followed Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. The two forms of polytheistic religions I have spoken about are more focused on a way of life rather than life and afterlife. Unlike the two forms of monotheistic religions discussed Buddhist do not believe in souls or an eternal Creator God. After one dies, Buddhist believe one 's energy passes on to another form until they have reached nirvana. Once a person reaches nirvana, they let go of an individual identity and desires.
2. Compare the background and main features of Humanistic Buddhism and Engaged Buddhism. In this essay, I will first compare the background of Humanistic Buddhism and Engaged Buddhism by looking into their time of happening, history background, reasons of emergence and their development in recent years.

Background Humanistic Buddhism “Humanistic Buddhism” is a form of Buddhism that emphasises on cultivating one’s compassion through daily practice.
However, they do not believe in the enlightenment. It is believed that a person achieves deliverance when they are free of all harmful karma at this point they are called arihants. Once this occurs they travel to the highest level of the universe where they live among the other liberated souls.Samsara is an essential part of the Hindu and the Jainism religions because it is centered on how a person should live their lives and the possible consequences of not living according to the teachings and beliefs of the faith. Samsara determines how soon a being will reach the enlightenment or deliverance. References`Religions - Jainism: Reincarnation and deliverance.` BBC.
These are the ways the Buddhist strive for to overcome Karma. In Hinduism they handle Karma in very similar ways, They believe the same, that not only one 's actions and deeds carry consequences through into the next rebirths but also our thoughts. That a man becomes pure through a unpolluted mind and honest deeds. One cannot escape karma alone by living this way, to escape what the Hindus call samsara or the recycling of life-one must achieve moksha or liberation from the limitations of
Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16. Paul knew it was the only way of salvation, the one power of God that was effective in forgiving and chaing man and bring them at least to heaven.Now we can see here Paul wrote this letter, the main idea what He wrote was to show what salvation means in the book of Romans.
